ahhhhOur vestibular system, situated in our inner ear, helps us maintain our balance and posture. It gives us an understanding where and how fast our bodies are moving.

Kids on the spectrum often have a hypo-reactive vestibular system. This is one of the reasons many seek active sensory experiences such as jumping, spinning or swinging.

The vestibular system give us our awareness of our body in space, and kids with sensory issues can often have not feel their body in space.
